By Wole Mosadomi

MINNA — An elder-statesman, Chief Philip Asiodu has said for the implementation of Vision 20: 2020 to succeed, there is the need for an attitudinal change on the part of the political leadership in their approach to governance and  motivation for participation in politics.

In an opening remarks at the Dr. Shehu Ahmadu Musa Memorial Lecture in Minna, weekend, Asiodu said, “it is a necessary condition for success that Nigeria should become a lawful, peaceful, stable, predictable, interna-tionally competitive state and a preferred welcoming destination for investment.”

Asiodu, who is chairman of the Council of Retired Federal Permanent Secretaries, COFFEBS, described civil servants as veritable tools in the aspiration of government to woo investors to the country.

He noted that though there has been great erosion of standards and values which have afflicted the civil service since the “devastating purge” of 1975 and the “reforms” of 1998, civil servants were still very relevant in the scheme of things in the country.
